Data Driven Decision Making – Ages 10-14 Years

In this session we will look at a challenging data puzzle. The puzzle is designed on a website so that learners at any math level can engage with the problem.

This is a problem that I used during the admissions process to Astra Nova School a few years ago, and it always brings lively discussion as we figure out the optimal way to solve the problem.

The prompt is below, looking forward to seeing you there!

As summer readers pour into her library, Tara faces an optimization dilemma…
Tara the librarian has a puzzle to solve, but it’s a good problem to have. Students want to read over the summer; however, many
students want to read the same books, and the library has a limited number of books to provide to students.
Can you help Tara decide who will get each book? Her goal is to get as many students as possible their best-ranked books.
